Fourth Of July Bento

I made this Fourth of July Bento for MisterMan last week since he didn't have school today, but I'll post it today, since we're finally back home after a long weekend road trip without wifi. He got All-American pigs in a blanket, steamed corn on the cob (with a grape and strawberry face), broccoli & carrots, homemade potato salad (with radish starburst and "4th" cutouts), an Okinawan sweet potato mitt with halved hard-boiled quail egg & nori "baseball", and an all-fruit American flag made from blackberries, strawberries and lychee! Oh, and I also made celery firecrackers for fun. Is that American enough of a 4th of July bento? Hope all my US friends had a wonderful celebration and an enjoyable long weekend. Ready to get back into the summer routine? At least it's a short week for us! ^_^

  11. Whoa! 4th cutout is amazing... I love the corn!

  12. These are truly inspiring, if a little daunting, to a first timer. But just had to say how amazing this little fourth of july scene is -- like a picnic, parade and fireworks show all rolled into one insanely beautiful box. What a great blog you have - glad to have found it.

  13. Mike, that's so kind of you. The 4th of July is the best holiday to make bento for, because of the abundance of colorful and fresh produce to choose from. I really appreciate your sweet comment, and glad you could stop by and peek at my bentos!

  14. This is soo cherry and appetising! love love
